Thanks so very much for your kind words Mary. I remember seeing you in the store often when I would be home visiting my Aunt and family. She would always mention to me when she saw you in the store and chatted with you. Your compassion and empathy mean a lot.

So sorry to hear about Rita's passing. I remember the years we worked together in Hartford. She always gave me a big welcome whenever I walked into IRI. In recent years, she was always ready to give me an update on your location, your successes and your health. She loved you so much. Keep her in your prayers and try to remember all the good times we had growing up in the West End.

Love you Man,
